Quantum Engineering?

  1. Apr 19, 2007 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I am in high school and I really enjoy reading about physics, math, and philosophy. I have read some books about quantum computing, and I find it rather interesting. I do have an interest in engineering, so I figure that quantum computing is something I wanna do. Does anyone know where I could become a 'quantum engineer'? What colleges are keen on both physics and computing? Also, are their any companies who are really looking for specialists of quantum computing or is most work done on the subject independent? Thanks to anyone who can answer my questions.

    Electrical engineering (particularly semiconductor device modelling and solid-state electronics) involves a tremendous amount of quantum mechanics.
